Tarenna sambucina (G.Forst.) T.Durand [Index Gen. Phan.: 177 (1888)] ex Drake, Ill. Fl. Ins. Pacif.: 190 (1890)


  • Basionym
    • Coffea sambucina G.Forst., Fl. Ins. Austr.: 16 (1786)
      • Syntypes:
      • Type locality: Insulae Amicorum[Tonga or Vanuatu].
        • Note: thus 'isotype' in K [ex LIV; K000763151(JSTOR)], which was collected in Tahiti, does not deserve lectotype (vide Smith 1988) and it belongs to var. tahitensis (Valeton) Fosberg & Sachet; Fosberg [& Sachet] (1991) stated that all the Forster collections of non-Tahitian origin are to be treated as syntypes until he completes his examination.
  • Homotypic
    • Chiococca sambucina (G.Forst.) Spreng., Syst. Veg., ed. 16, 1: 756 (1824)

    • Ixora sambucina (G.Forst.) Kuntze, Revis. Gen. Pl. 1: 287 (1891)
    • Tarenna sambucina (G.Forst.) K.Schum. & Lauterb., Fl. Schutzgeb. Südsee: 561 (1900), isonym
